Such is life Al, I always thought it would be cancelled as I don't think anything will go ahead this year. Very strange times ahead, and I can't see normality as we know it returning for a long time. Our Florida trip in June is cancelled, so just hoping for a refund. Still, the lockdown is forcing me to do some long put off work on my son's Minor.

This was sent out by George, the current chair of the Harrogate MG Club. The full reasons behind cancelling the show.

Social distancing, There is unlikely to be any lifting of lockdown in the foreseeable future. Many of our members are in the vulnerable age group. 

Many shows after ours have been cancelled. We need to let the Owners club know soon so the details can appear in the magazine. 

Also, how many of the public would attend if it went ahead due to travel restrictions. Would Trade or Clubs travel the distance? 

It also gives time for the public to cancel hotel bookings etc.

There are no club nights to discuss the rota for the show and also no donations for tombola or the book stall.

The printing firm is closed so we cannot print the programme.

We are also not keen to participate after all the precautions that we have taken to keep ourselves safe, it seems silly to expose any club member to the risk  in the near future.

Providing we all play our part in fighting this virus the 8th MMO National Gathering will happen next year.

Stay safe folks.

Unfortunately the show in August 2021 has been reduced to just a day rally, if it runs at all. No camping, side shows or entertainment are being allowed.

In view of this the 8th MMO National Gathering will be postponed until a full weekend can be safely run.

This now looks likely to be in 2022, fingers crossed...

It is a shame and will be missed once again by everyone who usually attends, but under the current climate I think it is the right thing to do to keep everyone safe.

We will manage to hold the 8th MMO National Gathering at sometime in the future and I for one am looking forward to it.

Onward and upwards!

mmm, cant really use the excuse of not enough time for my car being a bit tatty now can I :D

Shame its cancelled, a lot of people would be looking forward to getting out again, but these things take time and effort to put together and it is the sensible decision.

Hopefully it will pick up again when the time is right.

We have had similar cancellations, restarts and subsequent cancellation with scouting activities as I am sure plenty of other organisations have.

A lot of this years events are cancelled already. I think this year in general will be a washout, and best to make these decisions early to avoid getting a short notice cancellation.

I'm looking at finding a campsite to take the MMO National Gathering during the Pateley Bridge weekend.

As mentioned above the MG guys are running a Sunday show only on 8th August 2021, strictly no camping on the show-ground, so we are looking at venues within a reasonable drive.

Places may be limited, cost to be advised. It will not be a 'just turn up' weekend, we will need to book places. If you're interested (Friday to Monday) please let me know via this post.
